    I imagine the west eventually becoming like my home state of KS. Nearly 0 public land. Smh.

    That knife cuts both ways.

    The ecology fanatics have a small army of lawyers. When they sue the feds under the Endangered Species Act and Clean Water Act and win, the taxpayer pays their legal bills. The taxpayers pay the legal bills for BLM and FS to contest the lawsuit (if they bother to do so) win or lose. They burn a chunk of budget in court - money that could be used to maintain 4WD trails and other features. Thanks to this, motorized access to public land is lost every year.

    There are three "Wilderness Study Areas" a half hour drive from me. The fanatics claim they are vital to provide "corridors" for the critters to move from point A to point B. Since they cannot read MVUM maps and signs, I'm confused as to how the critters can tell the difference between plain old BLM or FS land and wilderness.

    RRs are the true land nazis... Got a 40 acre family farm along a river with a RR track through it. In order for to cross the RR tracks we have to request an Easement from the RR costing about $5k in legal fees. Well worth it though! Bottom portion of the farm is a where the real fun is. Just takes time doing all the legal stuff.

    The Utah delegation is betrothed to the extraction industries. Let's just hope he doesn't become the Governor.

    Do you have a credible citation for this?

    A) An article on a random website is not a credible source, nor is it "research."

    B) That article does not say anything about the Chinese owning our National Parks.

    You are spreading fake news. The Chinese do not own our national parks or other public lands.
